Labiduridae, whose members are known commonly as striped earwigs,[2] is a relatively large family of earwigs in the suborder Forficulina.[1][3]

Taxonomy

The family contains a total of approximately 72 species, spread across seven genera in three subfamilies.[4][5] Some well-known members of the family include Labidura riparia, commonly known as the tawny earwig, and Gonolabidura meteor. The family is mostly cosmopolitan, so it can be found around the world.[5] At least two species have been described from middle Cretaceous aged Burmese amber, Myrrholabia and Zigrasolabis.[6]

Description

The family's members are moderate to large earwigs, and are cylindrically shaped with well-developed wings. They have especially long antennae, while some segments can be shorter, and large cerci.[4][5]
